Square Updates Popular Register App

This week, users of Square Register are exploring the new features that came along with the update just released by the mobile payments giant.

The new features, we’re told, simplify the payment process for retail businesses by speeding up the checkout experience, chiefly in restaurant and dining environments. On the iPad, restaurants are now given the option to customize orders for customers as well as adding the ability to add their names to the order.

Here’s what Square says of its latest update in full:

  • Item library: Add items to a sale with a tap. Build your item library to simplify and speed up checkout. Customize items with photos, names, and prices.

  • Custom Tipping: Allow customers to enter custom tip amounts.
  • New look: Ring up customers and edit settings more easily than ever with an all-new design.

New on iPad:
